FS9 Weather Problem

Recommended Posts

I'm having an oh-so-repeatable problem with FS9. After reinstalling it, when I select or create a flight then begin my selected or created flight, the sim begins to load and when it gets to weather (usually at 77%) it freezes for a few moments, then dies, dropping me to the error reporting window.I copied down the info in the brief description of what has gone wrong, but I'm afraid it may as well be written in Urdu, since I haven't the foggiest idea as to what it means. But if it will help someone. the dialog says:AppName: fs9.exe AppVer: 9.1.0.40901 ModName: weather.dllModVer: 9.1.0.40901 Offset: 0000aa28If somone has any suggestions as to how I can get FS9 to work again, I'd be happy to listen. Thanks in advance for any and all advice.bwob

It's been a long time but I seem to remember this problem as being cause by clouds. As I recall the solution is to enable "Render to Texture" in Display Hardware section on the Options menu. I hope that this fixes you problem and I apologize for my poorly functioning (68 years old) memory bank. R-

Thank you Ron. I gave it a shot, but there was no effect. As before, things just came to a screeching halt at 77 percent after I hit the "fly now" button. bwob

this is a 'general problem solver' for FS9 -* shut-down FS9* move the FS9.cfg file to your desktop (do not delete)* start FS9* FS9 will rebuild the .cfg file* see if things work again.if you made any mods to your FS9.cfg now one by one copy/past from the 'old' cfg on your desktop to the 'new' cfg in C:Documents and SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftFS9this will assit in finding what 'mod' caused the challenge.--

Really sounds like the DXT cloud install error. Are you sure you don't have DXT clouds installed for increased performance? Even some alternative clouds might be DXT and not say when you swap them.Double check the "Render to Texture" setting in FS to be 100% sure. That error sounds like it, although I don't recall getting an actual error message.

MS Real Time Weather server is down. I wouldn't change anything in your FS until it comes back up.John M

john:bwob's issue 'pre-dates' the latest MS/Jep weather server issue. (it seems MS/Jep have this server failure every 4 months.)bwob - try the cfg file thing and just load the default FS flight (cessna at KSEA 34R). this default setting uses FS's basic weather (standard temp/pressure/calm winds) and does not involve collecting any information from the Internet/www.--

First off, please let me express my thanks to everyone who stepped in to offer a hand. I greatly appreciate it.However in the end a re-install was all that worked, despite the myriad of ideas you all offered. The reinstall was (moderately) painless. The hard part now will be reinstalling all the scenery and reviving the AI. But hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.Once again, my thanks to all of you.bwobhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/177541.jpgAt least it's working now
